that the government of the united states is not going to expand as a share of gross domestic product over the next ten years is, in my judgment, a denial not only of reality, but of necessity. we are now on track, i think, to have a government that consumes say 24% to 25% of gross domestic product which is a step up from the average of previous decades. i see no way of avoid ing thing and so one question that's on the table is how we can finance that in a responsible way so that the budget objective that mia mcginnis put on the table earlier of stabilizing over time the ratio of debt to our gross domestic product could be achieved in a way that's consistent with all of the other commitments that we want to maintain. my belief is that as we think it would be a mistake to think only about the total size of the revenue piece, we also have to think about its shape and composition. i think that the tax code that we have is antiquated, distorted and riddled with unfairness both horizontal and vertical. we need fundamental tax reform that asks questions about a 21st century tax system that promotes economic
